Press Release : Humanity First Responds to Natural Disasters

In the last few days, a number of natural disasters have struck around the world.

In Philippines, there has been tropical storm and flooding,   Indonesia was hit with earthquakes and Samoa is recovering after earthquakes and Tsunami. Thousands have died in these disasters and hundreds of thousands are still displaced.

Humanity First has responded to these disasters by starting the assessment and relief work in the devastated areas.

In Samoa, the Humanity First team has started the relief work through volunteers from New Zealand.

In Indonesia, the relief work has already started by our local teams in Indonesia who were well trained from previous Tsunami relief work. Soup kitchens have been established and volunteers are providing blankets, medicines and other relief items to the victims.

In Philippines, volunteers from Canada are coordinating the relief work through local Humanity First volunteers and by providing funds for the relief goods. Initial assessment has been completed and relief work has already started. Grocery items including bread, bottled water, canned goods, candles, medicines and other emergency supplies are distributed in the flooded area of the capital city of Philippines that still has no electricity or gas. Water supply still has to be disinfected and cleaned.
